What versions of the SCJP are available? 1.4? 1.5 and 1.6. Does the version matter as long as I pass one?

Yes 1.4 1.5 and 1.6 are available.

Whether the version matters is a different story. A manager will not recognize it but I will

If I were interviewing you I would be much more impressed if you had SCJP SE6 as opposed to 1.4 especially once I found out that you had taken the test in the last few months.
